I listened to everyone’s wishes and did what I wanted. Here’s the TVF Confidence Bowl Pool. The winner gets the 10 dollars Miz owes me. I hope to not win, because I’m tired of trying to get him to pay. BTW, the bet was that I said Tiger would win a PGA event before Dale Jr. won a race. I should have made the stakes 100 dollars. Dale Jr. is a pretty boy sperm lotto winner.

The last time I did a bowl pool was like 1997 or so. I was dating a lady whose brother and his wife lived on the way home from a friend of mine’s. It was New Year’s Eve, and we stopped in, only to be snowed in. We stayed the night, only venturing to use the complex’s indoor pool. Her sister in law was f-i-n-e, so I had to do that thing where you steal looks. Anyway, me and my date had nice quiet sex on the couch in the middle of the night, and I was a hero the next morning because my 4WD Wrangler enabled me to brave the unplowed roads for some breakfast items.

And I had my bowl pool sheet with me the whole time, so that’s how the story’s related.

I made my picks already, as have some of you hoping for Miz Money. I was going to have my kids pick, like with one of my brackets last March, but decided to just leave the numbers where they were already and make educated guesses on games I had a clue about and ignorant guesses on the rest. Too many picks, pain in the ass!

So my NC pick is LSU for 35, and here’s a song I like.
